End to End Team Building & Event Management for a Unified Conference Experience

KDM recently produced a unique experience comprising of team building activities, company party entertainment and end-to-end event management for an occasion any events company would be proud to showcase – a senior-level international conference that unified the senior global team behind a new leadership ethos.

About our client: Tunstall Healthcare Group is the market-leading provider of technology-enabled care services. Operating in over 50 countries and supporting over 3.6 million people worldwide, the organisation’s technology and services play a key role in helping older people and those with long-term needs to stay out of hospital and residential care and live independently.

The Brief: Our client asked for KDM’s support in planning its annual three-day conference. The event would provide a rare opportunity to bring together the company’s senior global team, to network, share common goals and take the company’s vision forward.

Our first task was to source a venue for an event that would include guest speakers, award ceremonies, workshops and team building activities. The CEO favoured a country house-style venue for 60 participants that would be prestigious but not ostentatious, in a rural location. With colleagues travelling from Australia, the US and Europe the location needed to be no more than an hour from Manchester Airport .

KDM involvement: We proposed Rookery Hall, an Elizabethan-style mansion in Cheshire. Having worked previously with the venue we were confident that it could deliver on all fronts, providing the requested auditorium and break-out rooms. We undertook the graphic design of logos, invitations and event branding. All collateral reflected the ‘Unify’ vision for the company’s strategy – the ethos of pulling together and collaborating. KDM also managed the conference AV and production, gala dinner theming and provision of evening entertainment.

One of the event’s highlights was a team building activity – The Missing Link. Devised by KDM, the exercise involved 10 teams each tasked with building ‘their’ section of the Missing Link machine. Gradually teams discovered that rather than competing, they needed to cooperate collectively to bring together the interconnected modules. KDM’s Senior Event Manager facilitated the activity, sharing notes on how each individual behaved within their team with the client’s own facilitator who fed-back progress live at the event. The Missing Link put into practice the company’s new strategy and enabled delegates to experience first hand the ‘Unify’ theme.

Client feedback: Carolyn Reed, Global HR Director said: “A big thank you to you and the team – the support the team has given us for Unify has been nothing short of brilliant!”
